Set in beautiful poolside surroundings, Uccello is ivy's hidden rooftop gem. Featuring an authentic Italian menu with only the freshest produce, each dish allows the ingredients to speak for themselves.
Head Chef Ben Sitton’s menu combines intricate flavours with influences from all over Italy. Think Piedmontese tartare with anchovies and witlof or goats curd tortelli with peas. Making the most of Uccello’s stone oven, Ben has also perfected wood-fired proteins such as octopus with chickpea puree, quail with pomegranate and Bangalow pork loin with Tuscan cavolo nero. The dolci menu is also not to be missed, try deep fried citrus custard or Zokoko dark chocolate mousse for a sweet end to a relaxed afternoon atop ivy.
Uccello’s menu is also perfectly complemented by an outstanding wine list by Head Sommelier Filippo L'Episcopo, featuring 450 Italian wines.
'Every dish is a knockout', noted the 2014 SMH Good Food Guide.
